It’s all gone quiet over there….

This week I was asked, “Is there any chance you can stop making clicking noises while we are filming the meeting?”

So I made a phone call for advice from a colleague and headed down to a pro camera shop in London. An hour later I was snapping away in total silence with my Canon 1DX and 70-200 mm lens encased in plastic and acoustic foam.

It took a while to get used to, mainly due to the extra weight but it got the job done in virtual silence. The body unit and lens tube are over £1,700 to buy but thankfully the cost of rental was quite reasonable for a day.

So now maybe I can have career taking stills in movie studios. Must give Pinewood a call soon.
